Assassin's Creed: Syndicate only £21.97 on PS4/XO

After the Unity debacle, many of you are probably waiting for a cheap deal for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. Well, £21.97 is one of the best prices we've seen. Act fast, as the 15% voucher code below has limited uses over at Rakuten today.

Reviews have generally been much more positive for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate than the largely derided Unity. Here's a taste of Carl's full review"While there are still blemishes that stop it matching the heights of Brotherhood or even Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate restores faith in the series by delivering a highly enjoyable open-world experience. Jacob & Evie make for entertaining characters in a beautifully crafted Victorian London filled with content that will keep you busy for weeks. So pick up your hidden blade - it's time to return to the creed."

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Special Edition £24.99

Missed out on the deal earlier this week? Not to worry, as Game are selling their Special Edition for just £24.99. Amazon are selling the standard edition for the same price, but other outlets are still way over £30, so this is the best deal to go for at the moment.

Fancy an Assassin's Creed Syndicate sword cane replica? Merchoid's new range has you covered

As we explained in our review last week, Assassin's Creed Syndicate was a return to form for the series. There was for a number of reasons, but one that I failed to mention in the review was because of how cool the weaponry was - especially the sword cane. We're no doubt cosplayers everywhere have been trying to make versions of them for their next convention, but thanks to the folks at Merchoid they've done all the hard work by producing some official replicas of both the sword can and the hidden blade gauntlet. It's all part of their officially licensed Assassin's Creed Syndicate range, which also includes male and female hoodies, and the surprising part is that they're actually not that expensive.

    Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Review | Ubisoft’s redemption?

    Much like with the series itself, to understand the present we must first look to the past. In this case, we need to briefly revisit the mess that was Assassin’s Creed: Unity. There were many flaws with that game, undoing anything of worth being able to shine, and the end result was the worst game in the series. The fact that Rogue – the last-gen effort – was more enjoyable just by sticking to a familiar formula proved that Ubisoft had a lot of thinking to do.

    Thankfully, the lesson has sunk in and one year later we have a game that, while not perfect, rectifies many of its predecessor’s sins.

    This time around, the player takes control of Jacob and Evie Frye – twin assassins whose aim is to liberate London from Templar control. Over the course of 9 sequences it’s up to the player to build up a gang to rival the oppressors, take back the city for the people, and stop the Templars from seizing a rumoured Piece of Eden. That’s of course on top of Jacob and Evie butting heads as siblings do over how to go about their objective, and it creates a rather interesting dynamic both in terms of the narrative and the gameplay.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate story trailer (contains epic moustaches)

    We're warming up to Assassin's Creed: Syndicate the more we see of it. Naturally, it's facing a lot of pressure after the poor showing of Unity, but we're sure Ubisoft is keen to get its flagship franchise back on track.

    Today's new story trailer shows us the ruthless Templar characters who are running London in Syndicate. Fans of twirly gentleman's moustaches are in for a treat. There's zero mention of a modern-day storyline sitting alongside the London narrative, so we presume Ubi has ditched it, which they were in the process of doing with Unity. Take a look at our features below for our earliest impressions on the game.

    Ubisoft E3 2015 Press Conference Impressions – Fractured, but whole?

    Ubisoft had a lot to prove this year following their many embarrassing mistakes in 2014. Did they make up for it at E3 2015?

    The three of us have very different opinions on whether they pulled it off or not, and whether this was a highlight of the day or the weakest show so far.

    Brendan

    Ubisoft E3 2015 Press Conference Impressions – Fractured, but whole?

    Ubisoft's show was bookended by some interesting reveals with an especially great opening one. Sure, I wanted another South Park game, but sometime you just don't expect to get some things. The trailer was packed with more laughs and smiles than the entire of the rest of E3 so far and I can't wait to see Ubi and South Park do their thing with the superhero RPG genre that they've sorta just invented on console - sit down DC Universe Online!

    The show-closing reveal had us guessing for a while. I was going with a sequel to Call of Juarez: The Cartel, but thankfully it wasn't. Instead, we're getting Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. I have to say, it looks very similar to The Division, but good. The open-world setting seems to be based south of the border in Mexico as the special forces take on the gruesome cartel gangs. Frankly, I can't wait to see more on this one.

    Ubisoft E3 2015 Predictions - "the road to forgiveness starts here"

    E3 2015 is just around the corner, meaning that major publishers are lining up to showcase their wares in the shadow of MicrosoftSony and Nintendo. One of whom has more to prove than most.

    2014 saw Ubisoft dragged through the mud for numerous mistakes, consumer-unfriendly decisions and intellectually offensive gaffes. With luck, E3 2015 will put them back in our good books. Here's what we expect from their press conference, what we want and just as importantly, what we don't.

    Brendan

    Ubisoft E3 2015 Predictions - "the road to forgiveness starts here"

    Not to start on a downer, but my wish list for games I want from the Ubisoft presser seems doomed to fail from the off, as I can't see how they'd fit them in with the games that have already been announced. But in a perfect world we'd be seeing a new Prince of Persia game, ideally one that gives me some goddamn closure on the 2008 original (not gonna happen).

    A new Rayman title is certainly feasibly, as it wouldn't require a huge team to work on, but again, I just don't see it happening. You'd expect Beyond Good & Evil to have something to show after all these years, but I'm remaining pessimistic in the hopes I'll be wrong. I'd like to see Far Cry 5 become a reality and ditch last-gen so the series can evolve from the fun but safe fourth entry.

    What will we actually get though? Extensive looks at The Division and Rainbow Six: Siege. I'm ready to be excited about The Division, I'm just so close to caring about it and need that little bit of brilliance to get the game out of the grey post-apocalypse box it's currently sat in.

    Brave enough to preorder Assassin's Creed: Syndicate on PC for £24.69/.99?

    Wow, that's a cheap preorder price for the upcoming PC version of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. We don't need to tell you how much of a gamble this is considering the clusterf**k that was Unity. But, this is really cheap. If you're confident that Ubisoft learnt their lesson after last year and actually quite like the look of Syndicate's 1868 London, this is a front-running preorder. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Ubisoft need to answer these questions

    After yesterday's reveal, some questions were finally answered about Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, but with months to go before release, there's still a lot we don't know about the world of Jacob and Evie Frye.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Ubisoft need to answer these questions

    How involved will Evie Frye be?

    We've heard that Jacob's twin sister will be a playable character in the game, but to what extent? Ubisoft told The Guardian that players will be able to swap between Evie and Jacob during the open world sections of the game between missions. But what sort of split the twins will have for the main campaign missions is unknown. Although, it hardly looks like a 50/50 split is likely as Jacob is dominating the box art and promotional imagery along with the statues of the special editions. It's unlikely we're looking at a pair of co-headliners this time. Still, it's nice Ubisoft managed to scrape together enough cash to mo-cap a female actor climbing a wall this year.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate reveals special editions & DLC, but does it deserve your pre-order?

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate was only publicly revealed yesterday, but Ubisoft have already made no less than four special editions available to pre-order. Some of which include the season pass -- because of course there's a season pass -- and some of which don't. There will also be two downloadable mission packs and physical merchandise too.

    Give me a moment to sigh in resigned exasperation before I quickly take you through it... before tackling what we'd consider to be a much more important issue. Do Syndicate and Ubisoft actually deserve your pre-order this time?

    Why Assassin's Creed: Syndicate already looks better than Unity

    With Assassin's Creed: Syndicate finally officially revealed after months of speculation and leaks, it's good to see what this year's entry in Ubisoft's series is shaping up like. Can it repair the damage done by last year's Unity though? Take a look at what we think were the most important elements to take away from today's official reveal. If you missed the live broadcast you can watch everything, including the new trailers for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate here.

    Why Assassin's Creed: Syndicate already looks better than Unity

    Rope launcher

    Sometimes, you've just had enough of climbing in Assassin's Creed, especially when Arno decides he needs to pause for a second or two with no explanation other than he actually wants to be spotted by that guard with the never-miss rifle. Thanks to the new rope-launcher, such issues could become a thing of the past as we see Jacob do a very tidy Batman impression throughout the demo by flying up to rooftops with ease. You can even use it to set up zip lines between buildings, with the option to drop off along the way for an aerial takedown on guards. This sounds like a fantastic method of getting through the larger spaces in some of Assassin's Creed's arenas.
